1. Single Oral Presentations

The oral presentations should be maximum 15 minutes long, followed by 5 minutes for questions and/or discussion. Computers and projectors will be available in all conference rooms. We recommend that you bring your presentation on a memory stick and upload it before the session starts.


  1. Symposia

Symposia follow the same procedure as the oral presentations. Note that the number of participants might differ between symposia and there might be more time available for discussion at some symposia. The chair of the symposia is responsible for the timing of the presentations, and if there should be a longer summarizing discussion after all presentations are completed or short discussion after each paper.


  1. Posters and Interactive Poster Presentations

Posters should be printed on paper in portrait format and should not exceed 84 cm width and 118 cm height (A0 poster will fit perfect). Materials for placing posters on boards will be available in the Poster areas.

Before the poster walk of this session, presenters should deliver a 3 minutes presentation about their study. Before the traditional walkaround poster presentation you will be asked to present your poster in 3 minutes (maximum) for the audience as a whole. There is the opportunity to present the poster with the aid of Power-point slides (a maximum of two slides). The slides are optional.

The audience presentation will take place in a conference room as it will be shown in the program, while the posters will be put up on the boards at the open space outside the lecture room. Hence, the walkaround will take place in the open space outside the lecture room.


  1. Session’s Chair

The chair is responsible for that the session starts in time and that all presentations are given equal time frames. A few sessions include fewer or more contributions and in that case the time for discussion is extended or shortened accordingly, not the presentations. The chair takes responsibility for these possible accommodations.
